How many Points are in this Weight Watchers chicken salad?
Why is this healthy Chicken Salad?
This recipe uses half and half mayo and Greek yogurt to replace the fat and calories from using all mayonnaise. Using regular mayo will increase the fat in this recipe a bit, though the saturated fat will still be fairly low. Using the grapes and apples adds sweetness that can cut out cravings later in the day.
This recipe is gluten free and high protein, but it is not low carb. Removing the fruit from this recipe will reduce the carbs quite a bit.
Using homemade rotisserie chicken in this recipe can cut out a ton of ingredients you might not care for that are being used in store bought rotisserie chicken. Stores typically use a lot of sodium, artificial sweeteners and other ingredients, and preservatives in their rotisserie chicken. It’s super easy to make homemade rotisserie chicken, too!
Each serving of this healthy chicken salad has 5 Blue Plan Points | 8 Green Plan Points | 5 Purple Plan Points. Make sure you are using the ingredients listed or you’ll need to recalculate for yourself to make sure the points are accurate. Using both mayonnaise and Greek yogurt helps the creaminess of this recipe without adding a ton of extra calories and fat–they make a perfect pair!
How do you calculate Weight Watchers points?
I use the online recipe creator feature at Weight Watchers Online. It’s a great resource for making sure you have the most accurate calculations! For the most accurate counts, use your exact ingredients, not nutrition info from recipes.
Is there a way to reduce the points in this healthy chicken salad?
This is a super low point recipe as is. I wouldn’t worry too much about reducing the points but if you feel that is necessary I would recommend leaving out the nuts. If anything I’d be more inclined to use full fat yogurt which would add points but increase the flavor and creaminess of the recipe! If you have more points to spare, that’s a great option!
